Congratulations to the Gowran Park Barton Cup team who beat Waterford last week. In almost an exact repeat of last years encounter with Waterford at the same stage of the competition, the match was very close overall and extra holes were needed with the score at 2 games each. Both teams missed birdie putts on the 19th and Ger Treacy calmly rolled in the winning putt (we’ve seen that before!) on the 20th hole which means Gowran Park advances to the Quarter Final of this competition where they face Dunmurry Springs of Kildare.
The 9 hole competition continues throughout the summer. It’s a great social evening and a chance to get some practice in before the more serious competition on the weekend!
Just show up on the Wednesday evening (around 5pm) and you’ll always get someone to join up with. There is also a special 9-hole menu laid on in the bar upstairs afterwards.
